Share DVD & DVD Drives Over the Network on Windows 

Leave a comment

From ultrabooks to netbooks, computers are shedding their optical drives. If you still use an occasional CD or DVD, you don’t have to buy an external optical drive –  you can share another computer’s optical drive over the network.

The two computers must be on the same local network to share an optical drive. This requires using the Advanced Sharing settings in Windows – there’s no easy, HomeGroup-style way of doing this.

Sharing a Drive

First, open the Computer window (click Start and select Computer) on the computer with the optical drive.

Right-click the drive you want to share, point to Share with and select Advanced Sharing

Click the Advanced Sharing button in the properties window that appears.

In the next window, enable the Share this folder checkbox. Type a descriptive name – such as “CD Drive” – for the share, and then click the Permissions button.

Ensure that the Everyone group has Read access to the drive. If you require additional security – for example, if you’re not using a home network — you can restrict access to specific users. Click OK to save your changes after configuring the permissions.

You may want to disable password-protected sharing to make this easier, assuming you’re on a secure home network. To do so, click the Network and Sharing Center link under Password Protection.

Click the Home or Work header, scroll down, and select Turn off password protected sharing to disable it. Click the Save changes button after you’re done.

After you click the OK button, your drive will be shared on the network. You’ll see its address under Network Path in the properties window.

An icon over the drive indicates that it’s shared. To stop sharing the drive later, go back into its Advanced Sharing window and uncheck the Share this folder checkbox.

Mapping a Drive

On your other computer, open Windows Explorer and click the Network option to view your network.

Browse to the share you created, then right-click it and select Map network drive.

You can specify a drive letter for the shared optical drive and have it automatically become mapped each time you log in.

The mapped drive will appear as its own drive letter in the My Computer window. Double-click the drive, or navigate to it in any application, to access its contents over the network.


Share DVD Movies to Devices/PC Over Network with One DVD Drive

You also can copy DVD to hard drive on PC with DVD Drive and DVD Ripper. Then put the DVD backup onto sharing folder of Plex or NAS, Cloud Storage. Afterwards, you can play DVD movies on your PC, Tablet, Laptop, Netbook, NoteBook, iPad, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Note 7, PS4, Xbox One S, PS4 Pro, etc.

Three Tools for Ripping/Copying DVD Movies

Leave a comment

Take a look at your DVD collection. How much money do you think you’ve spent on it? Watever, Maybe they just want DVD movies that can be put away in their cupboard and don’t want to get a little bit scratched on their discs. This guide will show you why you should Use DVD Copy Software and how to use it, hold on reading…

Part 1: Why You Should Use DVD Copy Software?

Before we get into why you would want to have a DVD copy of your favorite DVDs, let’s consider the basics first. DVDs perform two essential tasks: they store recorded information and play back information. Some can do both; some can only do one or the other. Anyone who has ever owned or rented a DVD – whether it was a movie, computer software or personally recorded video has come across a disc that has been scratched or broken. It seems to go with the territory.

Although they are not the latest and greatest communication media available to us today, DVDs can be expensive to buy or replace. In some cases, like with certain movies, music videos or home movies, the information recorded on these DVDs is irreplaceable. Let’s step back for just a second. The simple, basic reason that CD and DVD copy software was created is to fulfill our continually expanding requirements for storing data. Not only do we need something on which to store our media and information, but we also need it to be portable, compact and high quality.

The CD, DVD and their attendant burners came along and, voila the information storage void was filled. Since their initial release and subsequent evolution, CD and DVD copy burners have become so prevalent and popular that it is often taken for granted that they come standard with brand new personal computers.

In today’s day and age (we are in the Information Age, in case you hadn t heard), we have a number of devices that have the capability of recording video, such as smartphones, digital cameras and even most standard cell phones.

Share and Share Alike

There is one thing pertinent to this topic of why you would want or need DVD copy devices or burners, and that is the relatively new concept of sharing video across a variety of platforms and devices. It is when you try to navigate down this avenue of sharing that you will likely run into problems.

The most common problem with cross-platform sharing is that specific devices also have specific formats customized to the particular make and model of that particular device. So, what can you do to break through this electronic roadblock?

You can take a blank DVD and burn a copy of the information onto it. The good, old DVD is about as universal a format as you’re likely to come across in electronic media.

As mentioned earlier in this article, the vast majority of PCs these days have a DVD burner built into them. You might have to do a little detective work to find it and the directions on how to use it, but it is well worth the time and energy.

There are also a number of specially tailored DVD copy software applications available. You can probably purchase one for about $40 to $70. Pay special attention, however, to the specifications and features listed on the DVD copy software products so that you get the software that best fits your needs.

Copyright & Fair Use

It’s crucial that you have at least a basic understanding of copyright laws and fair use before you get too far into making digital copies of your DVDs that have copyright encryption coded into them. Most DVD copy software products come with some copyright information, and you can check the developer’s website for more information.

Fair use, in the realm of copyright, simply states that you are allowed to make one DVD copy of a copyrighted DVD, and it is to be used only for your personal entertainment. In other words, you can’t make multiple copies of any material that is copyrighted for any reason. That is a violation of copyright law.


Part 2: Use Three Tool for Ripping DVD Movies on NAS/Media Player/Portable Devices

To create digital copies of DVDs on Windows, you need Professional DVD Ripper to circumvent the encryption scheme and save DVD content in the format you need.

Manage Your Home DVD Library With DVD Backup

Leave a comment

If you’re a movie buff, you probably have a collection of DVDs you ve spent a considerable amount of money on over the years. While you can certainly get an entertainment system to house all of your DVDs, your DVDs will still wear out with time. DVDs can also become damaged in a number of other ways.

If you have children, you already know your DVD library is often the target of sticky fingers, which is a highly effective way to corrupt a DVD and cause accidents that result in stepped on and broken DVDs. If you really like your home DVD library, the best way to maintain your movie collection is to make digital backups of your physical DVDS.

How to Make a Digital Backup of Your DVD Library

You can make digital backups of your home movie collection in several ways. If you own mostly new movies, getting these DVDs in a digital format should be very easy. Almost all new DVDs come with a separate disc that contains a universal digital copy of the DVD. You can insert this disc into any computer drive to access a restricted link where you can download a specified number of digital copies of the new movie you purchased. You can even download digital versions of your movie in the MPEG-4 format that will allow you to play your movie on mobile devices such as a smartphone or tablet.

If you have many older movies in your DVD library and you want to maintain this collection by making a new digital DVD library, you re going to need to use DVD copy software to accomplish this. There are a few different types of DVD copy software you can use to convert your older DVDs into a digital format.

First, you’ll need DVD ripping software to transfer the movie files from the physical DVDs to your computer. There are several free DVD ripping software suites available for download, but these free versions tend to be slower, buggier and require a relatively high degree of technical knowledge.

Some of the best-rated DVD ripping software suites include DVD Cloner, 123CopyDVD, 1Click DVD CopyDVDFab and SlySoft CloneDVD. These software suites range in price from about $40 to $60 and are incredibly simple to use, according to user reviews. In particular, 1Click DVD Copy can complete the whole DVD ripping process with just one click. These software packs also are capable at CSS decryption and removing region codes, which allows you to easily copy DVDs you legally own without being stopped by copyright protections.

Storing Your Home DVD Library

Once you access the universal digital copy of your DVDs or rip them to your computer, the files will be stored directly on your hard drive. The problem with this is that if you have many movies in your DVD library, your collection will swallow your hard drive space very quickly. Storing several dozen movies will leave you with little to no hard drive space at all! To prevent this, many people choose to store their large DVD library on an external hard drive, which is easy to do. You just need to purchase an external hard drive and software with DVD-compression capabilities.
